Budget Getaways Review

Meticulously restored and framed by typical Overberg countryside of rolling wheat and canola, this gorgeous thatched farmhouse is ready and waiting 10km inland of Struisbaai and Agulhas.

Deriving it’s name from the Middle English word “kype” - referring to a high status residence - Klipfontein Keep lives right up to its name. 

Stepping over the threshold, the house sleeps a grand total of 10 across four sumptuous bedrooms.

Up the impressive spiral staircase to a mezzanine level. you have a double ensuite that flows onto a balcony and soft views. From here, it's a short step across to Eduard's Loft, a cozy den with bunk beds for the kids.

Swiveling back down the stairway, there's a ensuite twin and ensuite double at ground level. 

The open-plan living area and fully equipped kitchen exudes grandeur, with exposed timber beams and thatch, tinted screed floors and counter tops, chandeliers, comfy sofas and all the space you could dream of.

Added convenience come in the form of DSTV, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. This is sounding better and better.

For dinner, there's the choice of traditional kitchen, all-weather braai room, or classic SA barbie on the patio. Your chop has never faced so many choices.

Past the lawned garden, the 1600ha Klipfontein farm has more than enough to do: Post-braai farm walks, cruising about on your mountain bike, spotting springbok, bontebok, eland and gemsbok from the comfort of the patio, jaunts down to Struisbaai and the tip of Africa at Agulhas.

Oodles of space, solitude, a hefty dose of class, this Overberg group retreat is destined, like it's baby brother Langrug Lodge, to become a BG classic.

"The house is absolutely lovely! Everything you need and more was given to us. You really only need to pack your clothes and food. We will be back! One of my best vacations ever. Very peaceful."

"Words fail to describe the attention to detail put into Klipfontein Keep. Ample firewood, all the amenities you would ever need, dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer, ice maker, gas hob as well as electric oven and hob, jams, milk, honey, heated towel rails, full DSTV, wifi, the list goes on. You would be forgiven to think you are in a luxury hotel. Jenny really goes the extra mile to make you feel welcome. I would go back in a heartbeat."

"Amazing! Jenny has made the place amazing. Great hospitality."

"What an amazing experience at Klipfontein Keep! As you rise with the morning dawn, brought to you by an eager rooster, you feel refreshed and rejuvenated. Jenny went above and beyond to ensure every detail was crafted and presented with precision. We kept warm in front of the massive indoor fireplace and baked our own bread to feel like true farmers. The vast fields yielded curious cows and the friendliest sheep dog, who just happens to be a donkey!"

"This house is an absolute dream. It is beyond 5-star. A beautiful setting in green fields, complete with a beautiful fountain in the garden. It also has a little swimming pool and cosy outside visiting/kuier area. You have your choice of fire/braai facilities inside and outside! And there is an island-cooking area while walking into a full kitchen as well. Dstv, and Wifi and bunk beds for kids or two master bedrooms. Every bedroom has its own bathroom with exquisite decor. You have never had luxury like this. I promise you this place is worth so much more than you could ever imagine!"

"Awesome accomodation. Would definitely go back again."

"Superb attention to detail. Clean, well-equipped and spacious."

"Even better than the pictures! What a fantastic holiday spot. We loved the open space, large outside family dining table, swimming pool, inside braai area, lovely bedding, ice maker, fully equipped kitchen and lots of added extras. What more do you need? Highly recommended!"

"Klipfontein Keep is amazing - the house has everything you could possibly wish for. Having three en-suite bathrooms was a real treat. Jenny also left a few treats under the Christmas tree for us which was really kind."

"Klipfontein Keep was the ideal getaway! Home away from home. Really everything you need was available. It is surrounded by open fields where game was grazing, amazing sunrises and sunsets, and birds singing. The best getaway I have ever had!"

"Wow! I would highly recommend booking in at Klipfontein Keep. From the moment of booking with Jenny (amazing) to departure the service was outstanding! The property is so well equipped, furnished beautifully with all necessary goodies. There were the most delicious home made rusks to enjoy in the morning with coffee, wood for the fireplace and a view to die for. This was like heaven on earth! Thank you for making this break amazing."

"A true gem of a house and location for a family weekend away or even if it is just the two of you. Fabulously decorated with an eye for detail, practical and has all the amenities you might need. Jenny who made all the arrangements and being so accommodating, thanks a mil, we will be back - this time with whole family!"

"Pure magic!"

"This is a 5 star PLUS getaway on a fabulous farm location with all the mod cons in a beautifully renovated farmhouse. Idyllic!"

"A great place! It has everything you need and more. Jenny the host is so accommodating. We really enjoyed our stay. Highly recommended!"

"All round fabulous!"

"Klipfontein is a true gem. Decorated to a very high standard, you want for nothing! Slip into crisp, sparkling white sheets at night after star gazing on the open patio overlooking the farm, its true decadence. Both husband and wife are true hosts, we were treated to a city slicker tour of Johan's wildlife farm which includes buffalo, gemsbok, blesbok, springbok as well as oats, barley and canola crops, this is one busy farmer and yet he chatted to us as though he had all the time in the world. An added bonus, should you want to do more, is to ramble into Struisbaai for an afternoon on the beach. It was a great treat to visit the farm, thank you Jenny and Johan."

"Klipfontein Keep offered us all the things we value most in a getaway, a house that is beautifully appointed, comfortable both inside and outside, a stoep you never want to leave and an open braai place on the side of the house where you can sit under the stars and wish the evening was just a litle bit longer. We were surprised to find a private nature reserve complete with game for our own use, the veld and animals are beautiful and adds something other getaways don't offer. Bring your mountain bike, hiking boots or picnic stuff. The inside fireplace is equally special which allows this getaway to be an ideal destination for both summer and winter months and being in easy driving distance from Cape Town and suburbs makes Klipfontein an ideal choice for weekends away. We will be back soon."

"Wonderful!"
